Cuckoo’s Nest’s concerts at Chaucer’s have been cancelled until at least January 2022

We thank you sincerely for all your support over these many years. Our audiences have been amazing especially over the last few years before COVID and we miss seeing you all.

Because Chaucer’s Pub is such an intimate space, and in order to keep everyone (including the performers) safe, we are unable to schedule any concerts until further notice.

Due to the small space at Chaucer’s Pub, we are unable to provide physical distancing required by government regulation and still make the concerts work financially.
